Description

Storyline

British couple Fiona (Dame Kristin Scott Thomas) and Nigel (Hugh Grant) are sailing to Istanbul en route to India. They encounter a beautiful French woman, and that night, Nigel meets her while dancing alone in the ship’s bar. Later, he meets her crippled American husband Oscar (Peter Coyote), who tells him their story. While living in Paris for several years trying to be a writer, he becomes obsessed with a woman he met by chance on a bus. He tracks her down and they start a steamy love affair. Soon, Oscar finds himself enslaved body and soul by her love, and continues to tell Nigel the details of this relationship in various stages over several visits to Oscar’s cabin.

eerie life, arcane love

When I first saw this movie in 1992 i found it shocking by its erotic scenes and burn-out love story. i noticed it was a good movie, but that was the end of the story.

Now i bought it in dvd and saw it for the 2nd time. it’s a masterpiece.

Everything blends perfectly in this film: 1990’s paris, the colours of the film (etalonage), the excellent vangelis’s music score, the evolution of a love story, the roles played by the 2 couples…

Emmanuelle seigner is great playing the role of a nymph and a sorcerer, peter coyote is magnificent playing the part of a regular guy who gets insane, hugh grant becomes a perfect boring middle-class british bourgeois and Kristin scott thomas her discreet wife looking for action.

one of the best amour-fou stories, along with louis malle’s “damage”. as rui wrote before, a must see.

Bitter Moon. A forgotten masterpiece
 
Every man should watch this film, it is a Polanski masterpiece. The parts are wonderfully played and the script is menacingly accurate. Why it didn’t get greater exposure at the time or since baffles me, particularly as two of the principle characters have since become “famous” , Hugh Grant and Kristan Scott Thomas.

Most men will empathise with the morality or lack of in this confused relationship between an older man obsessed with his sexual object in the form of the stunning French actress, and her adoration for him. The haunting reality is that for so many the lack of depth in a relationship is frightening once the sexual desire diminishes. An awesome film 10 out of 10.
